Online Shopping Using a Credit Card

Tenable for Retailers

Both brick-and-mortar and online retailers that accept credit/debit cards are subject to adherence to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The PCI DSS is a comprehensive security framework for the  protection of payment card data.

Tenable products meet or demonstrate adherence to numerous PCI DSS requirements from internal vulnerability scanning with Nessus®, to fulfilling external scan requirements with our PCI Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) Nessus Perimeter Service. The Passive Vulnerability Scanner identifies data flows to maintain the cardholder data environment, and Security Center Continuous View can be used to demonstrate compliance with numerous PCI DSS requirements.

Vulnerability Scanning with Nessus

Fulfill internal vulnerability scanning requirements with the Nessus® vulnerability scanner. Prepare for a PCI compliance assessment using Nessus PCI audit reports. These generate simple PCI pass / fail results — making analysis of large numbers of servers or vulnerability results easy and automatic.

Vulnerability Scanning with Nessus

The PCI DSS strongly advocates analysis by a trusted third party. With Nessus, organizations can run PCI vulnerability scans to identify and correct issues well before the official audit occurs. This can reduce the cost of the official audit by reducing the time it takes to get the auditors the information they need.

Nessus can identify sensitive data that may be subject to PCI compliance requirements, including common data formats such as credit card numbers and Social Security numbers. Nessus can perform these searches without an agent, only requiring valid credentials to scan a remote computer.

PCI ASV Validation with Nessus Perimeter Service

Tenable Network Security is a PCI ASV and is certified to validate PCI vulnerability scans of Internet-facing systems for adherence to the PCI DSS.

  • Use a single solution, Nessus Perimeter Service, to perform PCI scans and submit them for quarterly PCI ASV validation.
